GODFREY Kwizera, FUFA vice president (administration) yesterday put an end to speculation by announcing his intentions of standing for FUFA presidency next year.
Kwizera, who also doubles as chairman of the National Football League Committee (NFLC) said he believed the football governing body â€“ FUFA â€“ needs a leadership change if the countryâ€™s fortunes are to be revived.
â€œThere is a lot of work to be done to put Ugandan football back on the right track and I am privileged and honoured to be able to put forward my name as a candidate for the seat next year,â€ he said.
Kwizera is sure he stands a chance of ousting the incumbent Denis Obua, whose two reigns since succeeding Twaha Kakaire in 1998 have been any thing but to cherish.
Kwizera said that his move is based on an agreement between him and Obua that he â€“ Obuaâ€“ goes for two terms before Kwizera succeeds him.
â€œWe agreed that he rules for two terms but on the look of things it seems he wants to break that agreement,â€ he said. Kwizera intends to travel extensively to drum up support.
Obua when contacted said he had not made up his mind on the â€˜third termâ€™. â€œWe will discuss that next year to avoid confusion now,â€ he said.
